What they're saying about the Odell Beckham Jr

Stephon Gilmore felt like pretty much everyone else when the news came down that the New York Giants were trading Odell Beckham Jr to the Cleveland Browns.

While the Giants seemed to dip a little lower in the NFL's power rankings, the other NY team came prepared to write their signatures on a few checks.

Dolphins trade QB Tannehill to Titans
The Dolphins have traded quarterback Ryan Tannehill to the Titans , Tannehill's agency, SportsTrust Advisors announced. He posted a 42-46 record over six seasons, while throwing for 20,434 yards and 123 touchdowns with 75 interceptions.

Beckham is easily considered to be in the elite class of receivers when healthy.

That's a big haul for the Giants as they enter what could be a multi-year rebuilding mode, but what it does for the Browns could be franchise-changing. Football fans in MI noticed, too, but not only because of Beckham going to Cleveland. Early last season, with the Giants off to another bad start, Beckham seemed upset with his role in Shurmur's new offense and said quarterback Eli Manning was not capable of throwing deep passes. He signed an $84 million deal with the Washington Redskins and NY got nothing immediately in return - except the right to now face him twice a year.

At the same time , a poll from PPIC found that most Californians preferred life imprisonment to the use of the death penalty. He rescinded those execution regulations and shuttered the state's never-used $853,000 execution chamber.

Along with improving their offense, NY was also able to add former Baltimore Ravens inside linebacker C.J. Mosley.

Beckham had the best statistical three-year start to his career of any receiver in National Football League history, earning Pro Bowl honors in all three seasons. They may draft a quarterback this year, but it will take time to draft and develop him. They also could invest one of their two first-round picks this year - sixth or 17th overall - in a QB such as Ohio State's Dwayne Haskins.

And neither of the judges offered any conclusions about whether there was collusion with Russian Federation in the 2016 campaign. At last week's sentencing, Manafort wore a green prison jumpsuit emblazoned with the words "Alexandria Inmate" on the back.

"It feel good! OBJ, I love you brudda", Landry posted on Instagram, including a photo of himself speaking to Beckham on FaceTime. Seeing a division rival's roster weaken is nice; knowing the team will no longer have to line up against a thorn-in-the-side nemesis twice a season is a considerable bonus.
